Continuing with the background party theme (we made these in a video shown “live” on the Rambling Rose Studio facebook page), here’s a thank you card that will not be forgotten…
Look at all that texture in the background in decilious Lemon Lime Twist…
Watercolor paper makes a big difference in textural results.
A little (or a lot) bling and some pretty ribbon tidy this one all up.
Do you, like me have thank you cards you want to send? Lots of them I bet. Well here’s one idea for you…
Stuff ‘N Digits
Paper: Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and watercolor paper
Ink: Lemon Lime Twist
Stamps: Happy Wishes, Cake Soiree
Tools ‘N Embellishments: Self Adhesive Sequins, Aqua Painter, Low Tack Artist Tape, Saran Wrap, Embellishment kit from Cake Cafe (2018 Occasions Catalog)
The Thick Whisper White card base is 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4“
The watercolor layer is 4” x 5-1/4”. Attach paper to clip board with low tack tape to create a masked border.
Wet surface with water spritzer or Aqua Painter. Drop Lemon Lime Reinker on wet paper with Aqua Painter brush loaded with ink here and there and let the watercolor paper do its thing. You can spritz with more water to move the color or remove color with a tissue.
While the watercolor paper is still really wet, place a piece of scrunched up clear wrap paper on top. Press it down then let it dry.
Once dry remove the clear wrap paper and add “splats” of color by loading the brush of the Aqua Painter with reinker and flicking color by using the lid. Reload brush and add as much color as you like. Let dry.
Stamp sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist. I used a stamp positioner and stamped several times to get a dark image.
Add embellishment from Cake Soiree embellishments with glue dots.
Add several Self Adhesive Sequins.
Tie a knot in ribbon and attach at back of watercolor paper with SNAIL.
Add watercolor paper to card front with multipurpose glue. Weight the paper while it drys.
Inside there is a layer of Lemon Lime Twist CS 3-3/8” x 4-3/8” attached with SNAIL.
A layer of Thick Whisper White 3-1/4” x 4-1/4” was attached over Lemon Lime Twist CS with SNAIL.
This will be posted later today and we travel back to reality.
Thanks for stopping by today…
Here’s your “B-ism” for today..
I must be really precious…
